Mayor’s Credit Crunch Briefing

Steve Bullock has written a piece on his website about how he is asking the council and other partners in Lewisham to react to the economic turmoil of recent weeks.

He sets out four immediate steps he’s got people working on:

  • assessing the immediate, medium and long term effects on the people of Lewisham as well as on local businesses and voluntary organisations
  • providing key advice, guidance and information to people and businesses as to how they might beat the credit crunch – crucially we will work closely with the local voluntary sector on issues such as money and debt advice as well as on advice on how best to cut energy costs
  • working across London (on skills development, training and transport) to secure the best job prospects and opportunities for Lewisham’s residents
  • harnessing the work of all public agencies locally to do what is feasible and sensible to help people overcome the worst effects of the credit crunch

Steve says:

Over the coming months I am willing to work with all Councillors, together with our MPs and our GLA Members to make sure that locally as much as possible is done and that we speaking up for Lewisham.

    There’s a missing point.

    – expert’s advise on how to secure board memberships and chairmanships so that everyone has the best chance to beat the credit crunch with comfort.

  2. Max – I could do with some of that. Where do I sign up?

  3. Max says:

    I think that in Catford you may find some of those experts.

    Workshops could be held in betting shops showing how to lose other peoples betting whilst collecting a bonus, a golden handshake and annual state pension of £500,000.
